University of Sopron Explores Collaboration with Egyptian Embassy

Dr. habil. Zoltán Szabó, Director of International Affairs at the University of Sopron recently paid a visit to H. E. Mohamed Ibrahim Abdelkhalek Elshinawy at the Egyptian Embassy in Budapest as part of the institution’s Ambassadorial Program. The meeting, marked by warm hospitality and a genuine interest in collaboration, yielded several promising opportunities for the university to strengthen ties with Egypt.


The discussion centred on several key areas of potential collaboration:

Pre-Doctoral Program: The Ambassador expressed enthusiasm regarding the Pre-Doctoral Preparatory Course opportunities. He also offered to facilitate connections between the University of Sopron and the Egyptian Ministry of Education to explore the possibility of adapting the program for Egyptian students.

Memorandum of Understandings (MOUs): The Ambassador was open to collaborating on MOUs with Egyptian universities and research institutions, which could provide a framework for joint research projects, student exchanges, and other academic cooperation.

Industry Partnerships: The Ambassador offered to assist the university in establishing connections with Egyptian businesses, creating opportunities for internships, research collaborations, and other forms of engagement that benefit both students and researchers.

Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship: The Ambassador pledged support for the effort of the University of Sopron to increase the number of Egyptian Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship recipients. He offered to arrange a meeting with the Egyptian Ministry of Education to discuss this further.

The meeting between Dr. Szabó and the Egyptian Ambassador has laid a solid foundation for future collaboration between the University of Sopron and Egyptian institutions. By building strong partnerships with Egyptian counterparts, the institution can further enhance its international reputation, expand its global reach, and provide valuable opportunities for academic and professional growth for its students and researchers.
